24 pieces


Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes



8 slices Streaky bacon cut in half or thirds depending on how wide

24 plump Mejool dates, similar size

1 tbs fresh rosemary

1/3 cup honey

Pinch chili flakes/cayenne pepper

Toasted walnuts

180g goat's cheese



Switch the oven on and select air fryer function.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and place under the air fryer basket to collect the drips.

Split the dates in half lengthways, not cutting all the way through. Remove the pit and discard. Stuff each date with goat's cheese and gently squeeze to seal. Wrap each date in bacon and place seam side down on the baking tray. Repeat with remaining dates. Secure with a toothpick if necessary.

In a small bowl, mix the honey, rosemary, cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt and pepper. Evenly drizzle half the honey mixture over the dates. Cook the dates for 15 minutes until the bacon is crispy. Serve warm with another drizzle of the honey mixture and some crumbled walnuts over the top.
